    Icon1 1998 Yamaha RX135 Restoration completed - Now 5 Speed converted

    Putting on hold my RXG restoration for some reasons
    http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/thumpers...storation.html

    1) Started the restoration of 1998 RX135.
    2) Stripped it at my home, given the frame, engine case and other parts a diesel wash and a clean water wash.
    3) Frame painting done by my regular painter (from a car workshop)
    4) Engine center case is brushed and cleaned (looks almost brand new, no plan for painting the center case)
    5) Engine rebuild completed with 2OS Goetze piston
    6) Vehicle assembly started last night

    Will be using the parts procured for RXG (as much as possible) for this restoration.
    More updates and snaps to follow every day.

    Good going there Mr. Boss.

    Whats with the rear suspension bro ? Why does it look like that you have given a preventive coating to it ?

    Also did you coat the fender inners with araldite ?

    Old rear suspension is fitted just for a support. Will be replaced with brand new ones (Got a pair of Pulsar Shocks and right now it is with painter to match the color of Hubs and engine case)

    Regarding araldite in rear fenders, can you please through some light? I haven't done yet.

    Get some araldite and coat it to the inner side of the mud gaurds and give this combination the necessary curing time.
    This shall give you a much longer life of the mudgaurds - as they are constantly in contact with water from the inner side.

    Heard CT-100 shocks do the job better, give a thought though.

    Instead I have painted the inner side of mud guard with silver paint.
    Is this sufficient or should I proceed with araldite too?

    And the rear shocks, for my other bike (RXG) I will consider CT-100 ones. Thanks for the information.

    As long as you are satisfied with the paint underneath. Just make sure you have made a barrier.
    Paint shall also do, but I guess not as good as the araldite coat.

    It is not going to cost much. So I will also add another layer of araldite.

    I guess you can find couple of tubes under 100 bucks in any hardware shops.

    Can someone please help me sourcing the powerbox (resonance box / YEIS box) at Chennai?
    The one I had in the bike has a crack. Tried almost every shop in GP Road.
